Dedicated Mission Statement
Our mission is to awaken a sense of wonder and inspire environmental stewardship and citizenship through education of students, families and local residents along the Colorado Northern Front Range.
Our Curriculum Coordinator works with each class to make the Field Experience unique to them. All activities will be an extension of what the students are learning in the classroom.
All activities at the PLC are hands-on and encourage students to participate and ask questions. We believe that experiencing learning instead of just reading about it can inspire a life long love of learning.
Welcome back to the PLC! Feel free to walk the trails and fish at the lake.
You'll see school groups have made their way back out for Field Experiences and we're so happy to have them back!
The buildings are open for summer hours: Monday through Thursday from 8:30am until 4:00pm. At this time, masks are still required when inside the PLC buildings.
Stay safe, happy and healthy and get outside!
The Poudre Learning Center is now apart of NOCO BEET (Northern Colorado Building Environmental Education Together)! NOCO BEET is a collaborative of Environmental Education organizations working together to further the impact and quality of environmental education in northern Colorado. You can find helpful learning resources on their website. For more information, visit NOCObeet.org
Each month, this collaborative sends out a newsletter geared towards providing environmental education opportunities to families and teachers in Northern Colorado.
